A loan of $1,150 helped to help purchase equipment and marketing materials for a small start-up computer repair business.

Sandro's story

Sandro came to the States in 1999 from Ecuador, where he studied computer technology. He continued his studies in Morristown, but wasn’t able to complete his degree after two years. At the time, Sandro had started his own computer repair business but put it on hold to work as a full-time painter, which provided more consistent income.

In 2009, Sandro began repairing computers again on nights and weekends using the substantial customer base he had built over the years. Though he still paints during the day, he runs a small computer repair operation out of his basement. His expertise, affordability, and ability to speak both English and Spanish make Sandro’s services appealing to customers.

The funds from this loan will go toward purchasing equipment, such as monitors, hard drives, and cables, to assist the business. Sandro will also invest in marketing materials, such as flyers, in order to attract more clients. Sandro’s long-term goal is to move from his basement into a storefront.
